Preschool Program

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Early in life, children learn from the inside out, using their senses, from doing, feeling and experiencing the natural world. Learning here takes place through imitation and example rather than through instruction. As they are rapidly changing, young children thrive on having a consistent and predictable rhythm of activities. There is a consistent flow of the day, the week and the seasons. The classroom is warm and inviting, providing a secure home like setting for a gentle transition to school. On a daily basis children have time for music, arts and crafts, circle time activities and time for free creative play. Our curriculum is inspired by Waldorf education.

Our preschool class is offered for children 2.9 years old and potty trained to 4 1/2 years. We have up to 14 children with one teacher and one assistant. We offer half day 8:30-1:00 and full day 8:30-3:00 and after care until 5:00 pm We offer early morning care from 7:30 am.

Foundation

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

The foundation of a child’s early years that preschool lays is now considered to be an important part of how a child sees life and builds character. It is through play that the expression of the child emerges. Nourishing the creative spirit, learning becomes a living force inside the children. This is about building a sense of self and self esteem. Then, when the child gets into the later grades, the soil of their character is fertile.

If you are a parent interested in having your child learn their ABCs in preschool this is not the school for you. Our school is about building the foundations of a sense of self and building a place in the world.

Work

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Work is an important part of each day.  Whether caring for the garden, baking bread or cleaning up after free play.  They are working together or alongside peers to accomplish goals.  They learn the value of each other’s contribution, a sense of responsibility and their own significance in the community.
